Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

This site uses cookies. By continuing to browse this site, you are agreeing to our Cookie Policy.

Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age is an independent table top miniature wargame set in a fantasy world, in which players take control of armies and set them upon one another in conflicts ranging from minor skirmishes to mighty battles with hundreds of models.

The game and all of its rules are completely free to download and use, and consist of a main rulebook and over fifteen army documents, ranging from stoic men and noble elves to the feral orcs and dread worshipers of the dark gods. You can easily assemble your own army using appropriate 28mm miniatures from any manufacturer.

Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age has been created by a group of experienced wargamers, a large supportive staff and continuous input from the wargaming community. We aim to provide a competitive, balanced and fun game, with updates and new rules to be released regularly.

We’ve created 16 unique armies from the Dread Elves in the west to the Ogre Khans in the east. Each army has different units and playstyles and can be represented by models from any 28mm model company. People said it was impossible, but we have created a game that is both balanced and fun. Don’t believe us? Try it for yourselves.

Happy wargaming.

    Greetings @PunchieCWG I think it is fair to say that 1.2/1.3 was the "minimal" or "most streamlined" version of t9a. In terms of the core rules, 2.0 primarily had a new magic phase (to better reflect the background to the t9a world) and a couple of…

    The rules of course play differently, as there are some large changes. I remember that some customisation was removed in the switch from 1.1 -> 1.2 and a lot of things were switched due to concern about IP. However, it is my opinion that the game has…

    Regarding Entropic Lord, I'm totally in the same boat as @panterq. My experience is that he is too easy to play around for enemy characters and too fragile to attacks from normal troops. The difference between 2+/5++ (entropic lord) and 1+/4++ (normal…

    I would like all in to be removed. Say "u can drop two units in the same phase" so the first who have last two units can choose to do the trick to have some dice adv.
